East Valley Authors Query Contest

. Wednesday, August 29, 2012

If you're an author who belongs to RWA and has a query all dressed up with no where to go, check this out:

The contest is open to members in good standing of RWA National and who are not members of the East Valley Authors chapter. Writers who have not published or been contracted in book-length fiction (40,000 words or more) in the last five years may enter. Entries will consist of a one-page query letter, a synopsis (no more than 5 pages), and a writing sample of the first 5 pages of the manuscript (not to be used for judging purposes).
*The finalist entries will be judged by Micki Nuding, Senior Editor @ Pocket Books*

A traditional submission package for a fiction project includes a query letter, a synopsis, and sample chapters. Is your submission package query ready? Do you have a great hook? Does your synopsis capture the major turning points on which the story revolves? Does your query capture the style and voice of your story? If so, you may be ready for this contest!
Each entry will be assigned 3 first-round judges. The scores will be averaged for a preliminary score and the top three overall scores will become finalists. Winners will be announced on/about December 15, 2012 and be awarded prizes:
     * First place: $50.00
     * Second place: $25.00
     * Third place: $15.00
